which head gasket?


Recommended Posts

I have an MG prefix engine MG21760HEBW which type of head gasket should i use? and which cylinder head should be used with it i am using a 516816 head

I appear to have a water/oil leak after an engine rebuild and the cylinder head does not appear to have sealed or stuck down on the top surface?

Any constructive help or suggestions would be welcome

You need to use a flat top non recessed gasket Payen AG900 on that engine ... That's early PI 132 BHP .
That's the correct head for that block number (32mm exhaust valve )
make sure your using the correct studs & nuts Also the correct washers ( Important to retain the correct torqueing )
Re torque at first run stage when cold ,500 miles , 1000 then re- check occasionally .
